Obama adviser slams Romney for Limbaugh while planning to go on Maher
By Daniel Libit and Sam Goldsmith Wednesday, March 7, 2012
CHICAGO -- While slamming Mitt Romney for not standing up to the “strident voices” on his side, a top Obama advisor is planning to spend some quality time with one on his own, The Daily has learned.
David Axelrod, President Obama's senior campaign strategist, is scheduled to appear on Bill Maher's late-night talk show within the next few weeks, according to Kelley Carville, an HBO spokesman.
As the controversy over Rush Limbaugh's comments about Sandra Fluke continued, a former Obama White House official today joined Republicans in pointing out that Maher, who recently donated $1 million to a pro-Obama super PAC, has a history of his misogynistic slurs.
Last year, he was rebuked by the National Organization for Women for calling Sarah Palin a "dumb tw*t."
“palin is right to point out that bill maher has said some pretty disgusting things about women, comedian or not. they are rush like,” Austan Goolsbee, the former chairman of President Obama’s Council on Economic Advisors, and currently a professor at the University of Chicago, tweeted.
After Obama spoke with Fluke, the Georgetown University Law Student called a “slut” and “prostitute” by Limbaugh, Palin challenged Priorities USA to return Maher’s donation.
"Pres. Obama says he called Sandra Fluke because of his daughters. For the sake of everyone's daughter, why doesn't his super PAC return the $1 million he got from a rabid misogynist?," Palin wrote Tuesday on her Facebook page.
In a conference call with reporters today, Axelrod invoked Limbaugh on several occasions.
“He’s going to continue to lose independent voters when he walks away from issues like the one involving Rush Limbaugh last week, where he essentially refused to comment on what was a really egregious set of comments by Limbaugh,” Axelrod said. “Why? Because he’s afraid to challenge a guy who’s the de-facto head of his party.”
The number of advertisers to pull spots from the The Rush Limbaugh Show hit 43 yesterday -- and even the band Rush had bad news for the embattled talk show host.
The advertisers that ditched the show yesterday include: Freedom Debt Relief, Norway Savings Bank, Portland Ovations, Consolidated Credit, Constant Contact, RSVP Discount Beverage, Cunningham Security and Regal Assets, which said in a statement “Everyone at Regal Assets wants to let Sandra Fluke know that we stand by her side in full support."
Limbaugh brushed off the tally -- which he counts at 28 -- and said at least two advertisers plan to return.
“Everything is fine on the business side. Everything is cool,” Limbaugh said on his show. “None of what's happening is out of the ordinary," he concluded. "It's just part of an onslaught to try to convince you that this show's history and our days are numbered. I'm happy to tell you nothing could be further from the truth."
Late Tuesday, the 1970s rock band Rush demanded Limbaugh stop playing their music before and after commercial breaks. A lawyer for the band accused Limbaugh of “using Rush’s recorded music as part of what is essentially a political broadcast.”
